This coming Saturday, May 16, 2015, is Armed Forces Day. It's a time to honor our fallen heroes and those still serving here and abroad. These men and women hold a special place in the heart of those of us here at AMU. We will be forever grateful for what you do for all of us. May we, as a nation, never take that service for granted.
